The parents of a teenage girl in India have caught their daughter’s alleged rapists after police refused to register their complaint.
The parents, who are police officials, said that one officer accused their daughter of “making up a filmy story”.
A gang rape case was registered only after the parents personally caught two suspects and brought them to a police station in the city of Bhopal.
Two other men have been arrested, and a fast-track trial ordered.
The 19-year-old victim was returning from a study centre yesterday evening when two men attacked her under a bridge in the central Indian city.
After raping her for hours, they tied her up and called two more men who also took turns to sexually assault her.
According to BBC News, reports are that at least two police stations initially refused to register a case of rape. Two police officers have been sacked for refusing to lodge the complaint.
